Shortly after reading about a dog that was surrendered to a local animal rescue, Trista Pino knew she had to have that dog in her family.
FirstLocalNews.com published the story on Friday and now there’s a happy ending.
The male Boxer-mix was surrendered to Second Chances Animal Rescue on Thursday. Right away, the volunteer group knew something was wrong with the dog. With a $1,000 deposit, the group quickly took the dog to Algoma Veterinary Clinic and Dr. Alicia .
The Vet ran tests and it was discovered the dog tested positive for Cocaine and Methamphetamine. The dog was sick, lethargic and couldn’t walk.
The quick action of the volunteers at Second Chance Animal Rescue saved the dog.
That’s when Trista Pino made the decision to adopt the Boxer. She named him “Chance the Man”
Chance made a full recovery after a day at the vets and was quickly adopted out to his new forever home.
“he’s safe..sound and going to be spoiled!” Pino wrote on her Facebook page.
